Given the recent news from the Ontario Government about mandated closures, we felt it was important to provide an update regarding operations at the Odds & Sods Shoppe.
We will continue to operate using the protocols we have put into place. We remain closed to the public, but will continue offering storefront pickup during this period. Our operations are in accordance with the government outline for non-essentials at this time, as we have confirmed with the government hotline for small businesses
“Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Ontario government will be ordering at-risk workplaces to close-down, while encouraging businesses to explore opportunities to continue operations through work-from-home and innovative business models…”
“Teleworking and online commerce are permitted at all times for all businesses.”
We only have one staff in the store during this period, and social distancing as well as vigilant sanitizing practices are in place to protect our staff and our customers.
1) We will accept phone payments via credit card, or you can e-transfer the amount for the total being purchased to
2) Once you have arrived at the store, call in to let us know, at which point the staff member will bring the purchased items as well as your receipt to the front of the store, and place them in a clearly marked crate.
3) The customer can retrieve their purchased items from the crate at this time. No human contact takes place from the moment of purchase through the exchange of goods.
We will provide further updates as the situation evolves.
Best wishes for health and safety,
The Odds & Sods Shoppe
